FRANK COLQUITT BENSON—
Frank was born 07 Mar 1893 in Carrolton, GA. His parents were Mr. and Mrs. N. L. Benson. He had worked for several years at the SA Pace Grocery Company. He was medium height and build with brown eyes and brown hair.
He left Corsicana on May 8, 1917 to train at Leon Springs, Texas. Formally entering on May 12, 1917, he served as a first lieutenant in the 90th Detachment, Administration Labor Company.
On the weekend of Nov 12, 1917, he visited his parents in Corsicana. If the people of Navarro Co happen to visit the Majestic Theater in Corsicana on December 4, 1917, they would have been treated a view of Camp Logan at Houston, Texas, which was comprised of a group of officers at that place that included Frank C. Benson. And he was home again that year for the Christmas season. The second week of Feb 1918 his mother went to visit with him in camp Logan.
He was at Camp Merritt, New Jersey, working night and day so was even to busy to return his customary letters home when at the age of 25 years and 7 months he became very sick. His condition was serious, and that a daily report of his condition would be wired to the family. His father contacted Camp Merritt inquiring the nature of the illness which as it turns out was Spanish influenza. Only after a 5 day battle, on 06 Oct 1918, with the dreaded diseases he was over come and crossed over the river. His mother left for New York to accompany the remains of her son home to be buried with military honors at the Oakwood cemetery in Corsicana.
As Mr. Benson went to meet his wife with the remains of his son in Tyler, TX, and escort them the rest of the way home. At this time War Work Board committee comprised of W. H. Hastings, J. A. Thompson, Orville Hyndman, Joel Trimble, Roy Thompson and Wm. Clarkson Jr. held a meeting and decided to abandon the plans for the funeral as first had been announced due to the fact that there is now a quarantine on which prohibits any soldiers or military bands from leaving camp.
With that announcement the funeral took place from the First Baptist Church Saturday morning at 11 o'clock with Rev. HW Vining officiating and interment at
Oakwood Cemetery with the following pallbearers: Active, Jim Nick Garitty, Roy Thompson, Orville Hyndman, Jas B. Robinson, Kerr McClellan, Houston Holland, Homer Pace, Guy Tata of Dallas, Oscar Burns and Conrad Matthews; honorary S. A. Pace, W. M. Wilson, Hon. Geo. T. Jester, C. H. DeLafosse, C. E.

Tribute To Lieut. Benson printed in the Corsicana Daily Sun.
Thos Who Knew Him Best Praise His Virtues Most Highly
We whose names are signed to this article having worked side by side with Lieut. Frank C. Benson as his fellow employee at the S. A. Pace Grocery Company, desire to give this public expression of our esteem of him and by this means publicly declare his worth, so much better known to and so much better appreciated by us by reason of our personal association with him in the every day concerns of life. At the close of the public school in
Corsicana a little more than eight years ago, he began his career with this institution by seeking and obtaining, from the President of the Company, Mr. S. A. Pace, employment as a truck clerk. He spent the summer months in this position, displaying talent and energy, and noticeable fidelity and loyalty. These qualities were observed by all of his associates and especially impressed Mr. Pace, the manager of the company, who insisted upon his finishing school and taking his diploma, with a view later of assuming a high and responsible position.
It did not seem practicable to him to follow this advice and he insisted upon continuing with the company and he was accordingly retained and continued his services without interruption.
His promotion was steady from the first and at the time he responded to the call of his country, about a. year and a half ago he left us to devote himself to the national service for the period of the war he occupied one of the most responsible positions in the office.
He was modest, unassuming and pleasant in all of his associations and relations with the officers and employees of the company; and he had the uniform esteem and affection of them all. We looked with pride upon his successful career in the army. His career as a soldier, we knew could not be other than an honor to himself and his country, and we looked forward hopefully to the day when he would return to the pursuit of his successful civilian career among us, all being sure that his worth as a man would bring to him distinction in the business world. Full devotion to duty was his mark of distinction. Difficulties were never great enough to deter him from its full performance. We take consolation from the fact that he gave his life to his country in the line of duty.
Frank C. Benson is a noble example of the martyrs making the supreme sacrifice, to the righteous war waged by the great country for which he sacrificed a useful life filled with promise.
S. A. Pace, H. E. Pace, J. B. Robinson, J. H. Holland, J. B. Burns, O. S. Burns, J. W. Cheney, J. M. Pugh, J. S. Beauchamp, H. K. Wilder, F. L. House, John Nelms, Dave Jones, Lynn Adams, Ruth Curry, Louise Pace.
